PTSD-chan is cute!
Make way losers, coolest DD coming through.
In my personal canon she was the first shipgirl developed to fight the abyssals. (An American black project that went terribly right.) She fell into a fugue state after an early modernization attempt, but allowed for the standardization of the process. She is taken care of in a restricted section of the naval base, and is often visited by the admiral.
I'm confused, what is this KanColle in english thing I'm watching right now?
I mean it doesn't matter because any western company will go full pay to win with this and the JP version is simple enough to play even if I don't understand it but this came out of left field for me.
No it's just a knockoff, just like chinkcolle. It's ripped the sprites and names from kancolle and added it's own, mimicked the mechanics and tacked on some legit pay-to-win shit with premium currency fueling LSC.
>Is it an outright copy or something?
Nah, it's full of changes, like 100hp+ BBs on 1-4, p2w crafting, 19th century chink dreadnoughts shitting over Yamatos, etc.
Also a mishmash of stolen sprites from eveywhere.
I ended up with 8 from dangerbear k2 and trying to build taihou.
I don't know if I even need more, I have enough to run exp 5 and 21 with 4 each, and fleet 4 is on permanent bucketfarm so they wouldn't really benefit from bringing daihatsus.
You'll get more eventually, it's not really something you can actively grind for. I think the highest chance for akitsumaru recipe is 7k 7k 7k 7k 100 devmats at ~10%.
Who should I power level before the event?
The two Senkans are dupes.
The equipment rewards are going to be complete shit again, aren't they?
I'm not really all that surprised. A lot of the complaints from scrubs hint at the fact that they wish the game were really P2W, which is just hilarious when the people who don't play it try to level that criticism at the game.
Probably. When they implemented difficulty switching they put good equipment behind hard mode. They either didn't like this idea or the community responded poorly to it so in subsequent events they only put extra perishables like screws, medals and rations behind hard mode. This actually makes hard mode more of a status symbol because more casual players aren't required to try to complete hard mode for equipment and thus probably won't since you can collect all the girls on lower difficulties. The only real lasting benefit of clearing hard mode is the memedals. Hard mode is now only about challenging yourself.
I would not take those comments seriously. Most of the game's "defenders" are just paid shills. Besides, why bother playing a utter rip-off that steals assets from multiple games, when you can play one of those two other Chinese games if you want Allied ship girls?
I liked the idea. It encourages people to level the girls and upgrade equipment. All the good shit they used to give is now a maybe, which was pretty much the only reason to participate in events unless the new girl was unusually powerful.
>All the good shit they used to give is now a maybe, which was pretty much the only reason to participate in events unless the new girl was unusually powerful.
When was the last time that happened? Mizuho?
WhoooooO! I finally beat that motherfucking godawful 5-1 quest. I don't even care if there's an event coming up and I spent god knows how many buckets on it. I will never have to see that fucking eyesore in my questlog ever again.
Since you don't do this to every other fucking post where people talk about their progress in the game that make up half these threads, I can only assume that you're really really mad that you actually haven't been able to clear said quest, which just makes me even happier. Thank you for contributing to my good mood!
>Implying things of substance worthy of attention are ever posted here.
Why are they making me rank so I can get all the gear I want
>November's designs look objectively better than most of the characters in the game save Bob
>This is kancolle's flagship character
What is Kongos
>designs look objectively better
Yeah, nice seeing a bunch of shipgirls lacking the ship. No attempt at integrating the warship that the girl is supposed to represent, just throw in a couple of backpack cannons and call it a day. Not to mention the most ham-fisted attempt at shoving in 1940's Americana everywhere. Jiji's pasta boats are a better fit in KanColle than that overrated asshole's designs.
>This is kancolle's flagship character
That's wrong, she's just the biggest secondary bait. Kadokawa never intended her to be its flagship character and the design was originally rejected when it was originally proposed for Fubuki.
>What is Kongos
They don't carry the whole ship on their backs, are you retarded?
I understand you don't want chink because
and because other kancolle communities fap to him but this hate is seriously unreasonable.
He isn't innovative but art style is good, his designs are high quality, you can't deny that. And seriously, look at Ayaki if you want something stupid without integrating the warship.
Except his huge foreheads, which only worked on Libeccio.
Did November make this one? I think it's pretty good.
But not as good as these classics.
And the best for last.
Chinese ripoffs are the definition of trying to hard. Just look at this for example >>14723375. For what purpose? The eagle is even more ridiculous and why even include the classification?
Why would you insult Big E like this
November's Enterprise is probably his worst design, except for his subs, but his subs are exactly like Kancolle's subs, which are also awful. Except for U-511 but we know how that turns out.
Nah, the hate is well earned. The idiot and his lackeys talked major shit about that knock off Warship Girls and its devs, and called them typical Chinese con-artists. Funny that after a year, that game has made big strives in trying to escape KanColle's shadow and even finding success because of it, while November and his crew latch onto KanColle like a cancer. I really don't care if they add Allied ships or not, but I am very happy that moment it happens, November will finally fade way once and for all.
You guys make this out like it's the fucking devil. It's alright. Not half bad really. Certainly better than all the potatofaces.
I agree with that. I'm just saying that the desperate mindless hate is, well, mindless and people look like twelve year old retards getting so riled up by sole mention of that chink.
I have no idea what he did because I don't care about some stupid internet drama and don't follow every attention whore like you seem to do. I saw his arts when they were linked few months ago and think they're pretty good.
Everyone who has a different opinion than you is a shill? What kind of conspiracy crack are you smoking? Who do you think is going to pay money for someone tor someone to like fan art on an anonymous image board?
I would grind a couple hours of event farming. I've never had to pay for a shipgirl before.
It is a bit much, but most of them look pretty good and I'd be happy to have them in the game.
Well which am I? Newfag or a shill?
Literally what is the difference, except that the girl is well drawn
Don't pretend some KanColle girls don't carry a whole fucking ship on their backs.
SATSUKI IS THE CUTEST
THAT IS ALL
Anything with november will never ever be a normal discussion in a kancolle thread on both /jp/ and /a/. It does not belong here.
That's not a whole ship and it canonically splits into 4 sections.
>poor man's Shimakaze
They are suppose to be distinct unless they are sister ships or some weird prototype, especially since they are not Japanese. Compare Fubuki, Z1, and Libeccio and you will see their differences. This is just trying to cash in on KanColle's hype without understanding even the basics of ship class clothing.
It's not going to be a Chinese artist, get over it. It will be a new guy like Jiji was for Pastas or Fumikane was for Germans.
>Houshou, Goya, Imuya Valentine's voice lines
Wow it's fucking nothing. This is the least hyped event ever.
I want to get lovey dovey with Houshou.
Imuya needs more love
Hatuzuki is going to be the only thing worth working for this event, at most we're only getting 3 new ships. I have zero motivation and will probably just clear it on the first day and do lazy Maruyu farming for the remainder, even if all new ships are drops.
>We will be getting Iowa guns and jet engine.
No, we won't. They already said you're not getting the gun and ship until after Spring. Spring event is the earliest you'll get your hands on those delicious Mk.7.
Would you prefer the items to be gacha limited like in FGO or other kusoge?
Face it, boatsluts actually have the best micro transaction system. You only need to pay a 1time fees to open up slots to collect everyone.
>Currently, we are preparing for the winter event 2016: limited time area which will start this Wednesday, 10th of February. Alongside this maintenance, Houshou, I-58 and I-168 will be among the few to be receiving a Valentine's Day voice line. Hope you enjoy!
She's the ruler of the subs and make bitches bow to her dechi.
Way too bitter.
I wish she looked this cool in the game.
Enjoy your TP gauge regen for generic DDs with generic stats and some lousy new equipments you will probably use sometime in a stupid seasonal mini-event months later for another stupid scroll that looks like shit.
Saury banner looks great, Christmas decoration is utter shit.
While we're in the business of posting IDs of girls we finally got.
It's almost Valentine's Day ;_;!
There's still about this much until then.
So this is how she look like after being painted
The fleets' order of battle would have to be completely overhauled.
Let's say both sides bring CTF, and the day fight proceeds close to normal (aerial fight, escort fleets fight, main fleets fight) but the boss in the main fleet isn't sunk. Versus only an abyssal main fleet it's possible to have the escorts engage at night, but what about now? If the enemy escorts weren't wiped during the day fight, do they prevent the escorts from targeting the boss fleet? Would wiping out the escort fleet at night allow them to re-engage the boss fleet?
And what about STF vs CTF or vice versa? Would main fleets only get to fight the escorts? The whole reason to go STF is to put the big guns out first, but having them only shoot the small fry would be completely wasted.
And lastly, what about the new transport fleets?
There are so many questions that need to be answered.
>The whole reason to go STF is to put the big guns out first
No, the whole reason to go STF is to try to protect your escort fleet so you don't have to retreat or so they're in fighting shape for night battle.
Have two night battle phases. Your main fleet fights their escort fleet, and you need to sink enough ships to proceed to a second night phase where your escorts fight their main.
When they're using different fleet types, the fleets that would normally engage first fight each other, and the ones that would normally go last fight each other. The player has a big incentive to pick the type that gives a more favorable matchup, but that means they can give that type a tougher route so it becomes a difficult choice.
If you have a transport fleet, you just get fucked.
Got her in time just before the event. Do you have to scrap her to get a second one to drop?
>not her doing the saving
The Inazuma one is about her saving enemy ships
The Ikazuchi one is about her bring useless
The Hibiki one is about her being shipped to the Russians
The Akatsuki one is just about her being nosy
>catbombs every 5 mins for the past 4 days
>make new account to fuck around for 2 hours
>no catbomb at all
>switch back to old account
This shitty anti-bot system needs to stop.
Does quest Bw7 mean I have to S rank the boss node once or 4 times to actually defeat it?
I assume it is the latter but it is worth asking. I don't think I can spare the resources to clear such a difficult map 4 times.
>Gain Air Superiority at the Coral Islands in the Southern Sea Region!
I never had AS doing that quest, only AS+.
>Work on Securing Maritime Transport Routes!
So fucking clear.
>Maritime Escort Operation
This one is even better.
>Eliminate Enemy Northern Fleet Main Forces!
Too bad whole world 3 is northern area but quest only accepts three maps.
Nah, the names are bullshit. It' better to use 2-4 characters code and check on wiki. You will remember them all soon enough.
>Prinz and Ducky not mentioned yet for the event
They can't just make them droppable after a year and then not put them out again, right guys?
That just only goes to show how shitty the translations are. The 5-2 quest doesn't even use the same word as Air Superiority is, it's not the AS+ word either. It says 制空権を握れ！which is neither 制空優勢or制空確保
I don't know how it is for English only people but the
海上護衛 is much more clearer to me than Bw5. World 3 weekly is much easier to remember as the Hoppou weekly.
My point is, name of the quest doesn't specify what you have to do to clear it and have to check wiki or some other resource anyway. In that case it's better to use short code to identify the quest than whole sentence.
But yeah, translations are most likely bad. Unfortunately I'm not at the level to judge that yet.
The names don't give exact specifics but they give a good idea, which is far better than just numbering the quests and remembering them based on the numbers.
Hoppou is the name of the region, it doesn't refer literally going north at 3-5
I prefer typing 3 unique characters that clearly refer to single quest than five meaningless words that can easily be confused with other quest. If you think that's autistic, be my guest.
I don't know, I don't really like the idea of sortieing a few girls I don't particularly like over and over again 24/7 for like a month letting them to be permanently in level 99 just for some nobody knows what is the reward. Every month whenever I see the reward I was just like "glad I didn't rank, yet."
Then Whoba is 100% the next CA to get K2.
I wouldn't bet on it. There are currently 116 girls without K2. At the current rate of about one K2 per 1.5 months we'll finish in, oh 14 years or so (not even counting any girls added from this point on).
Who else isn't ready?
I'll wait and see for the rewards,if they're worth it I'll spend the first week stockpicking.
Newb here, how do my resources look for the event?
I'm looking to do easy!
I'm not nearly stockpiled enough. No farming for me. At least my Rei-go fleet is as ready as can be and I've got both cranes to K2.
>Winter and Summer are the hardest events of the year.
>You are a fool if you don't prepare.
That was true only once. You do not have a large enough sample pool to claim that, not to mention last year's Winter event was medium size, not small size.
>Final map the devs are calling extra-difficult
>Large numbers of farm-fest ships
People are going to be farming for Roma/Graf/Yuu/Prinz/Mizuho/New drop trophy ship up until the last minute then rushing to try and finish the last map on hard for the mememedal. It'll be just like last time, but with a last map from hell to troll farmers.
>Who else isn't ready?
I guess I'm not wanted here
Finally someone else like me. Started in 2013 Fall, just like to chill in events and level my favourite girls.
Small event obviously means fewer maps, the pattern is clear (Summer = Big = 7; Fall = Medium = 5; Winter = Small = 3), fewer maps means higher ρ of boats/map so easier farm. Unless you believe in the RNG meme, one can scientifically conclude that this event will be easy shit.
poi-db say the S rate in hard mode is 10% less than normal mode, and even when Graf do drop in all formation in normal mode, the last kill formation still give you double chance to obtain Graf compare to other formation
If the devs started adding non-elite Kai 2 DDs with non-retarded remodel levels, there would be no problem. A ship which didn't do anything amazing could be less powerful (let's say, Ushio or Ushio++ tier), but easier to remodel.
But no, let's add another 70+ second remodel.
No amagi is no life.
Uh huh? Well, there is that daily refresh, fight only once thing going on, so I can kinda see your point in it not being the fastest. What would be faster then, if I dare ask?
I don't really mind the slower pace too, I ain't in no hurry, just trying to clear 3-2 and proceed to world 4 from there.
Aww yizz, now I can have Tenryuu as the flagship for all 4 fleets. Now I only need 2 Tatsutas to back her up and I'm set for life
>the Hoppou weekly.
Hoppou isn't even on the same map you usually use to do it.
Hoppou is a specific character, fag.
Numbering them makes it much easier to look them up if you haven't memorized them. If you want a post to be self-explanatory, only the objectives do that.
Google: Winter event is a relatively small-scale deployment, but the final strategy waters of the "instep strategy" of the most difficult, the capture difficulty is slightly higher strategy.
Actual translation: Even though this is a relatively small scale operation, the hardest difficulty, A, is still a difficult operation.
I only have seven Quints (three +6, four +4), barely enough for escort fleet. Even then, I have doubts about going past +6. Seven screws per upgrade is a lot and it would barely increase damage.
Bur yeah, three Quints is a viable alternative depending on who else would appear in the fleet.
Maxing quints honestly seems like a waste of time for me. Three L50 grinds and a total of 21 screws just to have 1 TP and maybe 1% or 2% more in accuracy? No thanks, I have better things to improve.
I can't get enough, but I wont max it unless I ever have to take 3 torpedoes.
That anon has Ooyodo at level 154. I'd dare to assume he would prefer using her instead of Sakawa or Abukuma.
63 + 49 + 60 = 172.
I made a typo above, it's 2x 258 damage.
You don't have right to comment on others when you are below elementary schoolers.
Point is you're using Ooyodo's damage potential as an argument when she herself has subpar stats when compared to other CLs. You could've just ended the whole discussion right there by saying that she's your waifu.
Was this thing ever accurate? Anyway, I always liked using her as a yasen decoy, even more since night scout activates frequently based on level apparently. Her torpedo cut-in is more for PvP fun.
Various event maps have represented Abyssal attacks. Without some kind of fundamental change to the gameplay though, it's all the same shit.
Anything that's really time-sensitive or representing an actual "assault" on the player and their resources would be fucking game suicide though. That's why we'll never see boss gauge regen again.
Actually, do we even know if there's a noticeable bonus against PT from equipping yellows on CL/CA? I can only find this tweet that says BBs and the like are ineffective at hitting PTs, DDs and the like are effective at hitting PTs and also that BBs equipped with secondary cannons can be effective at hitting PTs to some extent https://twitter.com/KanColle_STAFF/status/666951768287367170
This would be great. As the defender you wouldn't be able to choose your battles or anything like that, you'd be given a single spot to defend with your life, or rather your boat daughters' lives. The abyssals wouldn't go gown unless they started the battle at taiha (coming from a previous node), while your ships could be sunk on the spot.
I can see this happening to close the gap between veterans and new players. The ragequits would be hilarious. Do it Tanaka I know you're reading this.
During Fall event, someine used E5 hard mode of the map to do a 311 samples test with a lv.99 Sendai Kai Ni. He used 20.3cm No.2 +6 gun, OTO +9 gun, and then a double chevron Shiun (the ranking reward seareconn). He only get 91 hit from the sendai, which mean 29.26%±2.58% accuracy. On the other hand, he equipped 5 different destroyers with 3×drums, including Lv.90+ Shigure K2 w/ 50 Luck, Lv.99 Yuudachi K2 w/ 51 Luck, Lv.122 Ayanami K2 w/ 50 Luck, Lv.99 Murakumo K2 w/ 15 Luck and Lv.99 Akatsuki K2 w/ 15 Luck. 100-120 samples are obtained from each of them, with each of their hit rate being 36-43%±5%, and by adding all those samples together, their composite hit rate become 39.56%±2.09%.
At least you can see DDs hit more than OTO-equipped CLs from it.
That test has literally no bearing on this discussion. Why did he use an overweight red instead of a fit? Why didn't he try double yellows? Where's the test for comparison where he switches the OTO out for 15.2 yellow?
Not really many data on accuracy side, but it have been estimated that, for firepower, Heavy Cruisers without yellow gun can only dealt 35% their usual firepowers when the target is PT. With yellow guns they can give out around 38.5%. For CLs they're 1.0 and 1.1.
Thank you for the data. However, I'm afraid it's missing the main appeal of yellow guns.
Secondary guns are used to perform day time cut-in - and those are definitely more accurate than destroyers. My Sendai (lv 82->97) and Tone (98->99) were much better at hitting PTs than lv95-98 Shigure/Yuudachi/Ayanami and married Akatsuki.
20.3 no.2 does not overweight. And the test's focus were comparing accuracy of DDs with different equipments against PTs so the Sendai K2 data is just a bonus if I read correctly.
>20.3 no.2 does not overweight
It does against PT boats, devs said in one of the tweets IIRC. You are supposed to use fit guns and/or secondaries in your CLs against the PT boats.
Not him, but I saw a neat image that tested it on Ooyodo and Jintsuu, but I can't find it. More tests have probably been done since then, but it was the only one in image format I've seen.
We don't know if different classes take different fit bonuses/overweights or not for CL like with BBs, which is a big limiting factor in relaying data because everyone keep testing on different girls when the data badly needs a control to give it a starting basis.
Only Aganos and Ooyodo used something different than worthless 14cm guns so even if there was fit accuracy bonus, it would never be worth it considering dramatic loss in firepower when compared to 20.3 (x). So far we only know about tiny bonus damage. And I'm pretty sure devs said there's no accuracy penalty for CLs for having higher calibers like there is for some BBs.
That's why, anyone saying something is overweight on CLs etc. should provide source - just like we have sources for BB guns or night cut-ins.
There is nothing of the sort. The devs only mentioned a fit bonus, but not an overweight penalty, unlike with BB-caliber guns. Essentially, that means that non-fit CL guns are always neutral, and do not incur an accuracy penalty.
>just like we have sources for BB guns or night cut-ins.
In what regard? Are there certain guns or equips besides searchlight/flare/night scout that affect cut-in chance or accuracy?
Not the guy you're replying to, just curious.
the devs aren't telling you everything about accuracy formulas, anon. tell me where was the tweet where they told us the overweight penalties of 16inch on every BB class?
+2 accuracy is already confirmed on 15.2kai/15.5 for Sendai-class.
They don't have to because they told us ages ago about overweight mechanic for BBs and it's obvious that when EVERY SINGLE BB gun has some sort of fit/penalty, the Iowa gun will have one as well.
>+2 accuracy is already confirmed on 15.2kai/15.5 for Sendai-class.
I want to protect that smile.
It would help if you weren't a retard and posted the link in reply to me or described it instead of pasting it right next to the talk about BB guns. Of course I didn't even click it in this situation.
